Seth MacFarlane, 'Ted' Writers Sulkin and Wild Land Live-Action Pilot With Fox


Seth MacFarlane is teaming with his partners in the raunchy teddy-bear comedy "Ted" for a new comedy -- this time on the small screen.

Fox has placed a put-pilot order with series penalty commitment for a new project from MacFarlane. The live-action comedy will be executive-produced by MacFarlane, and written and executive-produced by Alec Sulkin and Wellesley Wild, who co-wrote "Ted" with MacFarlane.

The as-yet-untitled project will follow two successful guys in their 30's whose lives are turned upside-down when their nightmare dads unexpectedly move in with them.

Twentieth Century Fox Television will produce.

MacFarlane, of course, is no stranger to Fox -- the network's Sunday night Animation Domination block is largely made up of the MacFarlane fare "Family Guy," "American Dad" and "The Cleveland Show." Sulkin and Wellesley have both worked extensively on "Family Guy," while Sulkin has also provided voices for "The Cleveland Show."
